Step 2: In a saucepan, combine 4 cups of water, 2 cups of apple cider vinegar, 1/4 lb of margarine, 4 tsp of soy sauce, 2 tbsp of garlic powder, 3 tbsp of black pepper, and 5 tbsp of Worcestershire Sauce over medium-high heat. Stirring continuously, bring the liquid to boil.

Step 3: Discard about 1 cup of the marinade. Set the marinade aside for further usage. The marinade will be used for basting while grilling.

Step 5: When the marinade is completely cool, set aside, and pour over chicken. 

Step 6: Cover the chicken with marinade, placing the bowl in the fridge. 

Step 7: Refrigerate them for at least 1 hour up to 24 hours. I have once tried marinating it for 24 hours, and the result is shocking. The chicken pieces were so juicy that they almost melt in your mouth. This is the secret part of preparing yummy chicken dishes.

Step 11: Baste The chicken legs with reserved marinade several times while roasting on the hot grill. 

Step 12: Check the internal temperature while grilling, whether the internal temperature of chicken legs has reached 165 degrees F or not. Remove from heat and let cool before serving.

preparing the sauce: 

Step 1: Pour all the ingredients into a small saucepan over medium heat. 

Step 2: Allow the ingredients to come to a bubble, and reduce the heat to a simmer. 

Step 3: Keep the heat on simmer for about 10 minutes. Serve the sauce with your favorite BBQ chicken. 

If you want to store the sauce, then keep them in an airtight container for further usage. Also, you can add up port a pit potatoes recipe as side dish.
